The construction of the Health and Science Alliance Center is expected to last for approximately 14 - 18 months with an anticipated opening for the 2017 fall semester.
Entrances to the College
The west entrance to the building from Lot B will be closed and inaccessible beginning on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.
The east side of Lot B will be fenced off and accessible only to construction equipment and personnel.
The handicap accessible parking spots that were affected by the lot closure have been relocated to the southeast corner of Lot B. Handicap parking spots are also located on each level of the parking ramp.
Access from Lot B and Upper Parking lots
A temporary walkway from Lot B and from the upper parking lot has been created for accessibility to the Main Entrance of the building on Marshall Avenue.
Access from the Parking Ramp
The west side building entrance at the Lower Level will continue to be available from the 1st floor of the Parking Ramp. The North 1 door building entrance adjacent to Lot E will also continue to be available.
Due to the closure of the west entrance, emergency exiting and evacuation from the west side of the 1st floor and Floors 2 - 4 of the West Tower via Stairwell F (see below map) will be redirected to the emergency exits in the south hallway near the mail room and Stairwell E on the 1st floor. Additionally, anyone using Stairwell F from Floors 2 – 4 of the West Tower will still be able to exit by going down to the lower level of that stairwell and following signs to the nearest exit.
About the new Health and Science Alliance Center
The new Health and Science Alliance Center will include four science laboratories, two STEM/health flexible classrooms, two health science simulation labs, three business and industry classrooms, and three general classrooms for a total of approximately 45,000 new and renovated square feet. The building will provide instructional and programmatic space for a number of academic programs including the two-year Associate in Science Degree Program, a two-year Respiratory Therapist AAS Degree Program, a Practical Nursing Diploma program, and a Phlebotomy Technician Certificate program.
